Introducing Spectacular Handmade Wooden Pens

Wooden Pens: A pair of Copper Scalloped Fountain Pens


I’m Todd, and I create original handmade wooden pens in my woodshop in beautiful Waddle, Pennsylvania.

I think wooden pens are just beautiful! The natural grain lines and colors are magnificent.  And the handmade wooden pens I make write so much nicer than the ones I can buy at the store. I journal quite a bit, and so I really appreciate writing with a nibbed fountain pen. I swear that a nice, heavy pen somehow makes my handwriting better. The ink flows out with the lightest touch and dries on the page so cleanly. This personal writing has proven meaningful and transformative, and the beautiful writing piece makes the activity even more enjoyable.

The art of authentic hand written communication is overdue for a comeback.

After I first started making pens, a friend commented on my pen and so I made one for him. I told him what kind of wood it was made from and what ink it uses, but really I was hoping that the one-of-a-kind item would inspire him to write something unique. 

And so I kept making pens. Each one teaching me something new about pen crafting. Above all, I believe that each pen I make is a potential opportunity for someone else to be creative and to write something she didn’t expect to write.  

I invite you to look around my website and I hope that maybe you’ll see an item that inspires you to want to write something unexpected too!

It’s rare to take the time to handwrite something in today’s digital world. 

We work on our laptops and are attached to our phones. We communicate through text messages and social media.  A handwritten letter is personal, and a delight to the recipient. Handwriting is also a stress reliever when we unplug from our phones and reconnect with ourselves through journaling.

Any of my handmade wooden pens can become your new…

Journal Pen – Work through something personal on paper.

Letter Pen – Bless someone else by taking the time to communicate the old fashioned way.

Signature Pen – Perfect for those important documents.

Executive Desk Pen – Prominently displayed on the corner of your desk.

There are a thousand thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up a pen to write.
